Korora 18 released, and it’s the same as the beta

We have decided to make the existing beta release of Korora (Flo) 18 the final version, as the beta period did not reveal any major issues which warranted a new build. The existing beta images have simply been renamed, so if you already have the beta you also have the final release.

We would like to thank everyone who has tested the beta and provided feedback, and welcome everyone to download it and try too!

Known issues

Features

Derived from Fedora 181, this release comes with the usual Korora extras out of the box, such as:

  • Adobe Flash plugin
  • Experimental support for Valve’s Steam client
  • unburden-home-dir, which moves cache files (like in Firefox profiles) onto RAMFS at login
  • undistract-me, which pops up a GUI notification when a terminal command has completed
  • Tweaked KDE and GNOME base systems
  • Experimental support for Cinnamon desktop in GNOME
  • Third party repositories (Chrome, RPMFusion, VirtualBox)
  • Firefox as the default web browser (with integration theme for KDE)
  • Firefox extensions enabled (Adblock Plus, DownThemAll, Flashblock, Xclear)
  • Instant messaging client (Kopete for KDE, Empathy for GNOME)
  • Microblogging client (Choqok for KDE, Gwibber for GNOME)
  • Full multimedia support (excluding Flash, see next)
  • Jockey device manager to handle drivers such as ATI and NVIDIA
  • Video editor (Kdenlive for KDE, OpenShot for GNOME)
  • VLC as the default media player
  • SELinux enabled (particularly worthwhile for Flash)
  • and more..

Upgrade

It is now possible to upgrade from Kororaa 17 to Korora 18, thanks to Fedora’s FedUp tool. Should you encounter issues, please perform a fresh install. Users still on Kororaa 16 should install 18 as the older version is no longer supported upstream and you are not able to update to 18 directly as 16 does not include the FedUp tool.

Feedback

We’d love to hear your feedback, so download it today and let us know!
